Knit Together
For thou didst form my inward parts, thou didst knit me together in my mother’s womb
The Miracle of Life
Anyone who has ever held a newborn child in their arms knows the feeling of being overwhelmed by the glory of the miracle of life. A new life, a human being made in the Creator’s image, is a miracle. Life is a miracle each and every time, a miracle in the fullest sense. It’s a work of divine agency, a beautiful and welcome act given from above, something more than the sum of mere material and biological processes. Anyone who has held a newborn child knows something divine is at work, something beyond our understanding. When we see the beginning of a life, we understand that God has worked a true miracle – He did this in his original breathing of the breath of life into the lungs of the first man, but He also reworks the same miracle each and every time He speaks another unique human soul into existence. When a human being is conceived, God weaves together spirit and matter, He inseparably intertwines the immortal soul with the bodily flesh in the womb of the mother. This union will never be broken, each of us is a body as much as a soul, and though the two will briefly separate, God has promised we will someday be reunited with our bodies for eternity. This is the humbling mystery: that when God performs His favorite and most impressive miracle, the bringing forth of new life, He chooses to do it through us – specifically, through women. This is perhaps the greatest natural honor that God can bestow on humanity, that he works through sinful, broken humanity to bring forth the miracle of the creation of life. God works a miracle at every birth, every conception, and continues working the same miracle of life throughout each lifetime as He sustains us, causes our hearts to beat, fills our lungs with air, and keeps us from harm until our days have run out. God brings us forth and sustains us, and the unbelievable gift is that this miracle is performed through sinful and unworthy intermediaries: us.

Is Abortion A Patient Right? Letter To Arkansas Attorney General’s Office
“Primum Non Nocere” is the first Latin phrase that most medical students learn. Translation: “First Do No Harm.” Physicians have access to scalpels, needles, radiation, chemotherapy, and even robots. Use these tools to heal, and ‘do no harm’. The second rule that we are taught is: All patients have rights. Most States now have ‘Patient Bills of Rights.’ Are all patients granted these rights? Yes. What about patients not born in the United States? Yes. What about patients not born in the United States… YES? Yes! We treat the Pre-Born as patients while still in the womb. Life-saving blood transfusions, open heart surgery, laser vascular surgery, spina bifida corrective surgery, and even vascular brain surgery are all now being performed on babies in the womb. ‘A Patient is a Person, no matter how small.’ From the moment of conception, one cell is genetically unique from the mother, father, and the other 8 billion people of the planet. Moms and babies can even have different blood types. The blood of the mother and the blood of the baby do not mix. Everything required by the baby crosses from the mother via the placenta and everything that the baby needs to eliminate crosses from the baby to the mother via the placenta.

The Morgenthau Plan (6:51)

What’s Missing In The Historic ICC Decision To Bring Israeli Leaders To Justice For War Crimes?
The chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), Karim Khan, made a historic decision yesterday by requesting arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defence Minister Yoav Gallant. This unprecedented move may, in time, be remembered as the moment when Israeli impunity began to crumble. For decades, Israel has operated with a sense of invulnerability, shielded by powerful Western allies, particularly the US. Despite numerous allegations of war crimes and human rights violations, the occupation state has seldom faced legal repercussions. The ICC prosecutor’s decision to seek arrest warrants, therefore, marks a significant shift in how the apartheid state is treated by the international community. The warrants sought for Netanyahu and Gallant cover crimes of extermination and starvation as methods of war; the denial of humanitarian relief supplies; and deliberately targeting civilians in conflict. Additionally, Khan has applied for arrest warrants for three Hamas officials: Yahya Sinwar, the movement’s leader in Gaza; Mohammad Deif, the commander-in-chief of Al-Qassam Brigades, the Hamas military wing; and Ismail Haniyeh, the head of the Hamas political bureau.

The Slow-Motion Execution Of Julian Assange Continues
The ruling by the High Court in London permitting Julian Assange to appeal his extradition order leaves him languishing in precarious health in a high-security prison. That is the point.
The decision by the High Court in London to grant Julian Assange the right to appeal the order to extradite him to the United States may prove to be a Pyrrhic victory. It does not mean Julian will elude extradition. It does not mean the court has ruled, as it should, that he is a journalist whose only “crime” was providing evidence of war crimes and lies by the U.S. government to the public. It does not mean he will be released from the high-security HMS Belmarsh prison where, as Nils Melzer, the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture, after visiting Julian there, said he was undergoing a “slow motion execution.” Prolonged imprisonment, which the granting of this appeal perpetuates, is the point. The 12 years Julian has been detained — seven in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London and over five in high-security Belmarsh Prison — have been accompanied by a lack of sunlight and exercise, as well as unrelenting threats, pressure, prolonged isolation, anxiety and constant stress. The goal is to destroy him. We must free Julian. We must keep him out of the hands of the U.S. government. Given all he did for us, we owe him an unrelenting fight. If there is no freedom of speech for Julian, there will be no freedom of speech for us.

Four Facts (0:56)
by The Older Millennial

Why You Should Never Trust A Psychiatrist
The following short essay is taken from the book `Betrayal of Trust’ by Vernon Coleman
If Medicine Was a Science… If medicine was a science then when a patient visited a doctor complaining of a symptom he would be given the best, proven treatment, a treatment that was quite specific for the disease. Treatments for specific symptoms would be predictable and diagnostic skills would, because they would be based on scientific techniques, be reliable within certain acknowledged limits. But that is not what happens at all. In some areas of medicine specialists operate in a way that would be considered a variety of pseudoscience if the practitioners did not happen to have qualifications recognised by the medical establishment. Consider, for example, the practices of psychiatry, psychosurgery and psychoanalysis, widely accepted medical specialities where doctors clearly still make decisions about treatments according to their personal beliefs, instincts and hunches rather than according to any scientific principles. Psychiatrists cannot even agree on which collections of symptoms constitute mental disorders. It was only in 1980 in the third edition of its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders that the American Psychiatric Association deleted homosexuality from its list of mental disorders. In 1985 at a meeting of 7,000 psychiatrists in Phoenix, USA three out of four main speakers said that schizophrenia did not exist. Where is the logic in any of this? Psychiatrists can offer no scientific evidence to support their decisions to accept some categories of mental illness while rejecting others.

The Vietnamization Of Ukraine
As Ukraine’s defeat in the war moves closer, the neocons are desperate to draw the US further into the fight. Over the weekend, former US State Department official Victoria Nuland told ABC News that the US must help facilitate Ukrainian missile attacks deep inside Russian territory. The Biden Administration has to this point avoided involvement in such attacks, likely because Russian president Vladimir Putin has warned that Russia will strike any facility that supplies or facilitates strikes inside of Russia, wherever they may be. It’s a clear warning from a nuclear power, but as Nuland and her fellow neocons see their Ukraine project failing, they demand escalation. This is just what they did in their previous disastrous projects like the Iraq War, the attacks on Syria and Libya, and the 20-year occupation of Afghanistan. For them the failure is never because it was a bad idea in the first place, but that not enough lives and resources were poured into that bad idea to create a good outcome. But Russia is no Iraq nor is it Libya. This time they are playing with World War III and nuclear destruction and no one in DC seems concerned.

For Iran, What Comes Next?
The Islamic Republic’s loss of its eighth president and top diplomat has raised concerns about its political future. Still, dramatic changes should not be expected so long as the replacements come from the same circle as the late officials.
On Sunday, 19 May, Iranian media began reporting on an incident involving a helicopter carrying President Ebrahim Raisi, Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, the Imam of Friday Prayer for the city of Tabriz, and the newly appointed governor of the East Azerbaijan province. Alongside other provincial and government officials, the group was returning from inaugurating a water dam at Iran’s northwest border with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev. With search and rescue operations dragging into a blanket of fog in Iran’s mountainous northwest, any hopes of finding survivors diminished through the early hours of Monday, and the Iranian government declared the passing of the eighth president alongside seven of his companions. Soon after the news was confirmed, all attention became focused on two issues: what would happen next and who would replace the late president and foreign minister [And a third issue, was Israel behind it?].

Zelensky A Legitimate Military Target – Medvedev
Ukrainian self-styled President Vladimir Zelensky, as the leader of a hostile political regime, is a legitimate military target, Dmitry Medvedev, the head of Russia’s Security Council, has said. Speaking to TASS on Monday, Medvedev said that the question of Zelensky’s legitimacy as president is of no particular importance to Moscow. ‘For Russia, the final loss of legitimacy by the pseudo-president of the former Ukraine will not change anything. He noted that the leaders of countries waging war are always considered a legitimate military target. Medvedev called Zelensky a war criminal, who should be caught and brought to justice or liquidated as a terrorist for his crimes against Russians and Ukrainians. Zelensky appeared on the Russian Interior Ministry’s wanted list earlier this month though no data has been released about criminal proceedings against him. Zelensky announced in December 2023 that no presidential or parliamentary elections would be held as long as martial law remains in force. In early May, lawmakers prolonged martial law by another three months.

Aspartame And Cancer Stem Cells: How This “Sweet Treat” May Drive Aggressive Tumor Growth
A concerning new study reveals the artificial sweetener aspartame could be fueling aggressive cancer growth by promoting cancer stem cell populations in one of the most hard to treat cancers.
A new study has found that long-term exposure to the artificial sweetener aspartame may promote cancer growth by increasing cancer stem cell populations in tumors. Cancer stem cells can seed new tumors and are associated with aggressive disease that is treatment-resistant. This study adds to a growing body of evidence compiled on the database linking aspartame to 77 distinct diseases and exhibiting 12 different modes of toxicity. Some of the most concerning diseases associated with aspartame include brain cancer, leukemia, lymphoma, and premature death. Key toxic mechanisms of aspartame include carcinogenicity, neurotoxicity, and endocrine disruption. This new research, along with prior data, suggests that aspartame may be contributing to the epidemic of chronic diseases in aspartame-consuming populations and should be avoided.

A Global Censorship Prison Built By The Women Of The CIA
Is building a slave state for Big Daddy the apex achievement of feminism?
The polite world was fascinated last month when long-time NPR editor Uri Berliner confessed to the Stalinist suicide pact the public broadcaster, like all public broadcasters, seems to be on. Formerly it was a place of differing views, he claimed, but now it has sold as truth some genuine falsehoods like, for instance, the Russia hoax, after which it covered up the Hunter Biden laptop. And let’s not forget our censor-like behaviour regarding Covid and the vaccine. NPR bleated that they were still diverse in political opinion, but researchers found that all 87 reporters at NPR were Democrats. Berliner was immediately put on leave and a few days later resigned, no doubt under pressure. Even more interesting was the reveal of the genesis of NPR’s new CEO, Katherine Maher, a 41-year-old with a distinctly odd CV. Maher had put in stints at a CIA cutout, the National Democratic Institute, and trotted onto the World Bank, UNICEF, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Center for Technology and Democracy, the Digital Public Library of America, and finally the famous disinfo site Wikipedia. That same week, Tunisia accused her of working for the CIA during the so-called Arab Spring. And, of course, she is a WEF young global leader.

Itamar Ben-Gvir Promotes Future Israeli Settlements In Gaza
An Israeli minister has once again called for the expulsion of the Palestinians from the Gaza Strip and an expansion of settlements in the besieged Palestinian territory.
Itamar Ben-Gvir in comments carried by Israel’s Maariv news site on Tuesday advocated a full military takeover of Gaza. The far-right minister said Israel should push the Palestinians to “voluntarily” leave to make way for settlements. “Israel should be the one that controls the Gaza Strip, unequivocally, and no one else,” Ben-Gvir said. Most important, he said, is “encouraging voluntary emigration of Palestinians” from the territory. “I would love to live in Gaza if possible.” Last week, the minister said the settlements called for by far-right attendees were the “true solution.” “We must encourage emigration. Encourage the voluntary emigration of the residents of Gaza. It is moral!” The minister has repeatedly called for the mass expulsion of Gazans and urged settlers to move into the besieged territory since Israel launched the savage military campaign across the region in early October. Ben-Gvir has also said he “opposes transferring humanitarian aid” to the Gaza Strip, where basic necessities are scarce and a famine is looming.

A Lawless World Driven To Brink Of War And Political Assassinations
On Monday May 20th with the UN’s International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutor issuing arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his Defense Minister Yoav Gallant along with three Hamas leaders for war crimes, and President Joe Biden again repeating, “What’s happening is not genocide. We reject that,” still insisting that Zionist Israel is not engaging in genocide against Palestinian people, we live in an increasingly dangerous world. This comes just days after a failed assassination attempt on an EU national leader, and then the sudden death of Iran’s president and foreign minister, today’s outrageous tempo of disturbing world events is extremely ominous. The fact is, every single day now we are waking up to more perilously foreboding signs of endgame collapse, imminent world war between top nuclear powers, political assassinations, and yes, a polarized, seemingly out-of-control world, chaotically growing exponentially more unstable and violent by the week. This unending stream of unfolding incidents signify escalating global destabilization, the globalists’ deliberate controlled demolition of our planet gone mad. None of this is by chance nor by accident. It simply reflects the systematic breakdown by diabolical design of all life as we’ve known it. Destructive omens of accelerating upheaval and potential mass death appear near daily now, coming in large shocking doses.

Katherine Maher’s Color Revolution
The NPR boss is a symbol of regime change—foreign and domestic.
The West’s favored methods of supporting Color Revolutions include fomenting dissent, organizing activists through social media, promoting student movements, and unleashing domestic unrest on the streets. Americans hold varying opinions on such efforts, but what many don’t realize is that they occur not only overseas but also here in the United States. The summer of rioting following the death of George Floyd, which ushered in the new DEI regime, was in many ways a domestic Color Revolution, advanced by progressive NGOs, media entities, and political actors. A minor figure in these movements, a woman named Katherine Maher, has recently come to greater prominence. Maher was involved in the wave of Color Revolutions that took place in North Africa in the 2010s, and she supported the post-George Floyd upheavals in the United States in the 2020s. She was also the CEO of the Wikimedia Foundation, which runs the online encyclopedia Wikipedia, and was just recently named the new CEO of National Public Radio. At NPR, Maher has already been embroiled in controversy. Longtime editor Uri Berliner, who has now resigned, accused her of left-wing bias and suppressing dissent. Following these accusations, I did extensive reporting demonstrating that Maher has a troubling history of arguing against the notion of objective truth and supporting censorship in the name of democracy. Now I have gathered additional facts that raise new questions about Maher’s role as a regime-change agent, both foreign and domestic. She has brought the Color Revolution home to America.

Abiogenic Deep Origin Of Hydrocarbons Disputes The Climate Change Cult
Today I am publishing a guest post by my Australian friend Dr. John Gideon Hartnett about the Abiogenic Deep Origin of Hydrocarbons. I have briefly summarized this kind of research in the past (see: The Myth of “Fossil Fuels” and the Myth that the U.S. is Transitioning Away from Oil to “Green” Energy), but Dr. Hartnett is far more qualified to write on this topic than I am. His bio: “Dr John Gideon Hartnett is an accomplished Australian physicist, cosmologist, and noted biblical creationist. A PhD holder from The University of Western Australia (UWA), Hartnett has served at both UWA and the University of Adelaide, contributing to over 200 scientific papers. He was a founding director of a successful startup that has commercialized his research on ultra-stable cryogenic ‘clocks’. He’s known internationally as a speaker on biblical creation, and has written extensively on the subject, especially from an astrophysics and cosmology perspective. Hartnett also writes popular science pieces, frequently critiquing man-made climate change and green energy.” He is also a fellow Truth Warrior and my brother in Christ, who stood firm against the tyrannical COVID edicts opposing the Australian Government from 2020 on, and standing on the Truth, even at risk to his own life and career.

Possible Broader Plot Behind Slovak Premier’s Shooting
Indications emerge that gunman was part of a group.
The Slovak police said they’re investigating the possible involvement of more people than just a “lone-wolf” shooter in the assassination attempt on Prime Minister Robert Fico. Government officials initially said that a single perpetrator with a political motive was responsible for the May 15 attack. On Sunday, authorities said that cooperation with domestic and foreign intelligence services had led to a broadening of the probe, to include a version in which a group – which wasn’t identified – may have been linked to the crime. … A potential broader assassination plot is supported by the fact that the assailant’s social media communications were erased by another person about two hours after the shooting, Interior Minister Matus Sutaj-Estok told reporters on Sunday. Based on that development, “we added a version that it wasn’t only a lone-wolf attacker, but that the crime may have been conducted by a certain group of people,” he said, declining to give more details due to the sensitive nature of the case.

Canadian Euthanasia Doctor [Dr. Ellen Wiebe] Gushes About How Much She Enjoys Killing People
Dr. Ellen Wiebe rejects the case made by disability rights groups that they are vulnerable, and that social pressure and even coercion often accompanies euthanasia.
In the recently released BBC documentary Better Off Dead?, disability rights activist Liz Carr interviewed Dr. Ellen Wiebe, Canada’s most notorious euthanasia doctor. Wiebe is also an abortionist and an activist with Dying With Dignity, the euthanasia lobby group seeking to expand eligibility for assisted suicide in Canada even further. Wiebe’s attempted defence of Canada’s euthanasia regime backfired when throughout her interview, she laughed and smiled as she discussed ending the lives of patients. “I love my job,” she told Carr. “I’ve always loved being a doctor and I delivered over 1,000 babies and I took care of families, but this is the very best work I’ve ever done in the last seven years. And people ask me why, and I think well, doctors like grateful patients, and nobody is more grateful than my patients now and their families.” Her euthanasia patients, it must be noted, are dead. As one disturbed watcher noted on social media: “Enjoying her job a little too much, I felt.” Many others concurred.

The Deathwatch Of 2020
We are all on deathwatch now.
It began slowly. In January 2020, there were rumors of a new disease, a killer, circulating in Italy, Wuhan, China, and soon in a couple of cruise ships. Then, the first predictive modeling came out, projecting 2.2 million deaths in the US and 510,000 in the UK. That predictive computer model turned out to be quite wrong, but it was enough in March 2020 to lockdown the United States and most of the rest of the world. There was a deathwatch in March through most of 2020. We all held our breath those first few months and watched with some confusion and cautious relief as the COVID deaths failed to match the modeling, but we were still under all the repressive pandemic measures. Behind the scenes, there was another kind of deathwatch in hospitals. People who were robust and youthful were dying unexpectedly. Our guest, Zowe Smith, was one of the early medical personnel who made notes and privately questioned what she was seeing.

Homosexual Parenting Is Evil And We Must Eradicate It
Imagine you are watching a nature documentary, marvelling at the miracle of birth, when suddenly the newborn animal is taken from its mother and given to males of the species to raise. You’d find it cruel and unnatural. You wouldn’t expect the baby to survive, and you’d know instinctively that you just watched something that was deeply wrong. Now picture the poorest country you can. A child is born on a dirt floor and instantly bonds with his mother as she holds him for the first time. His father will meet him soon, the son he has been waiting for, who will carry his name and continue the family line. The infant will feed from the breast of the woman who bore him inside her for nine months, who shares half his DNA, whose smell he will never forget, and from whose voice he will begin to learn his native language. This child might have the odds against him, and may well live a life of poverty and hardship. But he enjoys the most basic human right of all – the right to have a mother and father. Yes, throughout history mothers have died in childbirth, single-parent families have sadly always existed, as has adoption, fostering and community care, all out of necessity.

Assange Wins Right To Appeal On 1st Amendment Issue
The High Court in London ruled Monday that Julian Assange can appeal his extradition to the U.S. on the grounds that he is being denied his First Amendment rights.
The High Court in London on Monday granted Julian Assange the right to appeal the order to extradite him to the United States on the grounds that the U.S. did not satisfy the court that it would allow Assange a First Amendment defense in a U.S. court. “We spent a lot of time listening to the United States putting lipstick on a pig, but the judges didn’t buy it,” Stella Assange told reporters outside the court building. “As a family we are relieved but how long can this go on? The United States should read the situation and drop the case now.” Assange has been imprisoned in London’s notorious Belmarsh Prison for more than five years on remand pending the outcome of his extradition. He must now spend an untold number of more months in the maximum security prison awaiting the start of his appeal. In that sense it was a bitter victory for Assange. He gets to stay in prison another year or more, Joe Biden doesn’t have to worry about a journalist showing up in chains in Alexandria, VA during a presidential campaign and of course Assange could lose his appeal and arrive in the U.S. at a more opportune time for Biden.

World Reacts To The Death Of Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi
World leaders express condolences after Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi dies in a helicopter crash.
World leaders have expressed their condolences on the death of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi in a helicopter crash. Rescue teams began searching for Raisi on Sunday afternoon after his aircraft, which also carried nine other officials, including Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian, went missing in Iran’s mountainous northwestern region near the Azerbaijan border. On Monday morning, relief workers located the missing helicopter. State TV reported that the president’s body and that of the others on board had been identified. Here are some reactions to the president’s death from across the world: The United States Stated Department has expressed its “official condolences” for the death of Raisi and other officials in a helicopter crash. “As Iran selects a new president, we reaffirm our support for the Iranian people and their struggle for human rights and fundamental freedoms,” department spokesman Matthew Miller said in a statement. Meanwhile, US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said that he had no insight into the cause of the helicopter crash. “I can’t speculate on what may have been the cause,” he told reporters.

Beyond Awards And Accolades: Why Gaza Journalists Are The Best In The World
By granting its 2024 World Press Freedom Prize to Palestinian journalists covering the Israeli war on Gaza, UNESCO has acknowledged a historic truth. Even if the decision to name Gaza’s journalists as laureates of its prestigious award was partly motivated by the courage of these journalists, the truth is that no one in the world deserved such recognition as those covering the genocidal war in Gaza. “As humanity, we have a huge debt to their courage and commitment to freedom of expression,” Mauricio Weibel, Chair of the International Jury of Media Professionals, which made the recommendation for the award, truthfully described the courage of Gaza’s journalists. Courage is an admirable quality, especially when many journalists in Gaza knew that Israel was seeking to kill them, often along with their families, to ensure that the horror of the war remains hidden from view, at worst, or contested as if a matter of opinion, at best. Between 7 October, 2023, and 11 May, 2024, 143 Palestinian journalists in Gaza were killed by Israel. It is higher than the total number of journalists killed in World War II and the Vietnam wars combined. This number does not include many bloggers, intellectuals and writers who did not have professional media credentials, and also excludes the many family members who were often killed along with the targeted journalists. But there is more to Gaza’s journalists than bravery.

The Subliminal Message Behind King Charles’s Red Portrait
The artwork was created by Jonathan Yeo, and depicts King Charles III covered in red symbols.
King Charles III presented to the world his first official portrait as the monarch of the United Kingdom, nearly two years after ascending to the throne in September 2022, following the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, who held the English crown for over 70 years. However, contrary to Buckingham Palace’s expectations, the unveiling of the portrait sparked a huge wave of opinions from people who were mostly shocked by the painting due to the intense red color that dominates it. The artwork was created by Jonathan Yeo, and in it, the artist depicted King Charles III dressed in a Welsh Guards uniform, holding a sword pointed downward, with a monarch butterfly flying over his right shoulder. As soon as videos of the presentation of Charles III’s portrait went viral, conspiracy theories quickly emerged, claiming that the artwork actually hid much more than what we could see at first glance.

Russia ‘Done’ With Western Europe ‘For At Least A Generation’ – Lavrov
An “acute phase of the military-political confrontation with the West is in full swing,” Moscow’s foreign minister has said
Russia won’t view Western European countries as partners again for “at least one generation,” Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has predicted.The diplomat remarked that Moscow and the West are already locked in a confrontation that has no end in sight. Top Russian officials, including President Vladimir Putin, have repeatedly described Moscow’s ongoing military conflict with Kiev as a proxy war waged by NATO against Russia. Evidence of this, the Kremlin says, is the material aid, the training, and the intelligence that the US and many European countries have been providing to defend Ukraine. Speaking on Saturday, Lavrov cited an article by Russian political scientist Dmitry Trenin, who has written that “Europe as a partner is not relevant for us for at least one generation.” The minister said that he “can’t help but agree” and that Moscow is “feeling this in practice almost daily.” The senior Russian diplomat also claimed, without elaborating, that “many facts speak in favor of such a prognosis.” “The acute phase of the military-political confrontation with the West continues [and] is in full swing,” Lavrov said, pointing to the nature of the narratives currently prevalent in the US and Europe.

Israeli Officials’ Jaws Drop Over Hezbollah’s Complex Operations
Israeli media outlets shed light on a series of Hezbollah attacks that have cast a dark shadow over “Israel’s” military capabilities.
Multiple Israeli media outlets are reporting on Hezbollah’s military capabilities, following a series of top-tier attacks that targeted highly-prized Israeli surveillance and radar systems, while introducing new methods of engagement. The Ynet news website said that Israeli officers serving on the northern front have issued a warning regarding the fact that Hezbollah can launch an attack on Israeli soldiers near the Palestinian-Lebanese border 30 seconds after locating them. The capability has been showcased in several videos published by the group’s Military Media unit, where Hezbollah utilized either suicide drones, anti-tank guided missiles, or artillery weapons of various types to target Israeli groupings and individual soldiers. Moreover, the military correspondent for the Israeli Army Radio said that Hezbollah has carried out a number of “high-quality attacks on more distant targets, using more advanced military weapons.” Hezbollah’s ‘amazing capabilities’ showcased in first-ever airstrike:On Thursday, Hezbollah launched an airstrike via an Ababil-T drone armed with two Soviet-era S-5 rockets on a grouping of Israeli soldiers in Metulla. The attack marked the first-ever aerial strike launched on Israeli positions by a Lebanese entity and the first Arab strike on Israeli positions since 1973.

Western Denial Today ‘Far More Sinister, Outraging’ Than During Nakba: Ilan Pappe (7:27)
Ilan Pappe, the author of The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine, joins Al Jazeera’s live and highlights the enabling role of Western countries in Israel’s war on Gaza, describing it as “even worse” than their stance during the Nakba. He explains that in 1948, the lack of television and smartphones made it easier to cover up the ethnic cleansing, but today, with the events displayed on screens, denial is far more sinister and outrageous.

Houthis Take Down Another US Reaper Drone, Reiterate Threat To Target Ships In Mediterranean
The Yemeni militia has turned the destruction of General Atomics MQ-9 Reaper drones into an art form, using homegrown variants of the Soviet Kub surface-to-air missile system to shoot the $32 million apiece attack UAVs out of the skies. The Pentagon has used Reapers extensively over Yemen amid the Houthi’ partial blockade of the Red Sea.
Yemen’s Houthi militia have reported the destruction of another MQ-9 Reaper using a “a locally-made” SAM. In a statement published Friday and reported by Yemen’s SABA News Agency, the militia said their air defense forces took down the American drone over Marib, western Yemen, where it “was carrying out hostile acts,” on Thursday night. The US military has yet to acknowledge the loss of the advanced drone. However, footage circulating online showed wreckage of a drone matching the Reaper’s dimensions and appearance, lying seemingly almost completely intact in a desert area at night. The Houthis don’t have a reputation for reporting on the destruction of enemy equipment unless they’ve actually done so, and previous attacks targeting Reapers have subsequently been begrudgingly confirmed by the Pentagon. The downed drone is at least the fifth destroyed over Yemen since October 2023. American forces have deployed Reapers en masse in the region to assist in their campaign of strikes on Yemen aimed at weakening the missile and drone capabilities the Houthis have deployed to try to enforce a partial blockade of the Red Sea targeting Israeli, US and UK-linked commercial vessels and warships.

Why National Socialism Is Still Feared
There was no such thing as a Russian Revolution. The 1917 Russian regime change was led by a Bolshevik bayonet charge invested in by Wall Street banks whose high-interest loans financed Western corporations who seized and exploited Russia’s captured natural resources. Wall Street’s mercenaries were led by Leon Trotsky (Lev Bronstein) and V.I. Lenin, whose real name was Goldman. Both were Jewish, wealthy and mentored by America’s banking dynasties. The undeniable truth is catalogued in hundreds of their own books and media; Jewish history boasts of its part in seizing Tsarist Russia. Financed by Jacob Schiff who headed one of Wall Street’s major banking houses, the seizure of Imperial Russia delivered to vast Western corporations, banking dynasties and political investors the world’s largest country and a source of immense natural resources. They are trying to do the same today. Before the Russian Tragedy, the population of Imperial Russia stood at 182 million. The 1990 census revealed that Russia’s population had dramatically reduced to just 143 million. The population of Russia today is just 126 million. In 1914, before the Bolshevik seizure of Imperial Russia were listed 54,174 Christian churches, 25,593 chapels, 1,025 monasteries, military churches and cemetery chapels. By 1987 only 6,893 churches and 15 monasteries remained. Synagogues were untouched – by law. Professor Kurganov calculated that from 1917 to 1959 as a consequence of the Bolshevik seizure of Imperial Russia, that is destruction by civil war, planned famine, collectivization, peasants’ deportations and mass executions lost in total of 66.7 million mostly European Christians (Russian source).

Maybe We’re Closer To “You’ll Own Nothing” Than We Realize
Maybe we should rephrase the slogan to “you’ll appear to own things you don’t actually control and be happy.”
The World Economic Forum’s catchphrase you’ll own nothing and be happy was widely mocked as an eyebrow-raising vision of a “sharing economy” future without the implicit agency granted by full ownership. Renting stuff that one needed only for one-time use has long been a market, and car-sharing makes sense for urban dwellers who only need a vehicle on occasion. But to own nothing still implies powerlessness and poverty, not happiness, which continues to be associated with owning income streams and nice things, i.e. wealth. Given our dependence on software / digital rights and the phantom wealth of credit-asset bubbles, “how much do we actually own?” is a fair question. Consider the recent New York Times article Why Tech Companies Are Not Your Friends: Lessons From Roku, which was reprinted in other publications with the more accurate title Our Gadgets Are Not Ours. Indeed. Now think about the “ownership” of software-dependent systems such as vehicles and Smart Homes, and income streams running through software platforms such as Stripe. Payment software platforms can block your access to your money and delete whatever illusion of control you might have had by informing you that you violated their “terms of service,” which are open-ended and cannot be questioned. One’s “ownership” of money and income streams turns out to be highly contingent.

Over 600 Mosques Destroyed In Israeli Onslaught On Gaza Since Oct. 7
The Ministry of Endowments and Religious Affairs in the Gaza Strip says Israeli military forces have fully destroyed or damaged hundreds of mosques in the besieged coastal territory ever since the Tel Aviv regime started its bloody onslaught in early October last year.
The ministry announced in a statement that the total number of mosques completely destroyed in the current conflict stands at 604, while another 200 have been partially destroyed. The statement said Israeli troops have also desecrated at least 60 cemeteries during their ground invasion of Gaza, and used bulldozers to dig up graves and steal the bodies of more than 1,000 people. It said 15 buildings belonging to the Ministry of Endowments and Religious Affairs were destroyed during the Israeli aggression, among them the headquarters of the ministry, the main office of the Holy Quran Radio in Gaza City, the Endowment Management office in Khan Younis, and a repository for documents and manuscripts. The statement said that 91 employees of the ministry have been killed in the Israeli attacks. Israel launched its onslaught against the Gaza Strip, targeting hospitals, residences, and houses of worship, after Palestinian resistance movements launched a surprise attack, dubbed Operation al-Aqsa Storm, against the usurping entity on October 7 last year. At least 35,386 Palestinians have been killed, most of them women and children, according to the latest health ministry update in Gaza on Saturday. More than 1.7 million people have been internally displaced during the war as well.

Israel Intentions Of ‘Displacement, Subjugation Or Death’ Of Gazans Are Clear: Palestine Envoy
The Palestinian ambassador to the UN, Riyad Mansour, on Friday condemned Israel’s atrocities against the Palestinian people, saying the Tel Aviv government no longer hides its true intentions, which include “displacement, subjugation or death”, Anadolu Agency reports. “It took 75 years for the United Nations to recognise and commemorate the Nakba, but the Nakba is not a historical event. It is a terrible reality still endured by our people, as Israel has yet to abandon its plans to push us out of history and geography,” Mansour said at a commemorative panel discussion titled “1948-2024: The Ongoing Palestinian Nakba.” The commemoration of the “Nakba” (catastrophe), which refers to the mass displacement and dispossession of Palestinians from their lands, comes “at a time where one of the most terrible chapters of this ongoing Nakba is underway,” the envoy said, highlighting Israel’s ongoing bombing and starvation of people in the Gaza Strip. Palestinians commemorate 15 May as Nakba Day as Israel declared independence on 14 May, 1948, occupying Palestinians’ lands after forcing them to flee their homes.

The Israel-Affiliated Organization Leading The Backlash Against Student Protests
The Israeli-American Council has worked in tandem with Israeli intelligence agencies for years. Last month, its leaders vowed to shut down the encampment at UCLA.
It was time to fight back on America’s college campuses. And the little known Israeli-American Council (IAC), an organization with close ties to Israeli intelligence, and made up mostly of Israeli expats, decided that it would lead the nationwide charge. On Sunday, April 28, as members of the group arrived on UCLA’s grass-covered Dickson Plaza, the IAC’s CEO, Elan Carr, took the stage. A Republican politician, former member of the National Council of AIPAC, and special envoy to monitor and combat antisemitism in the Trump administration, he had little regard for anyone who disparaged Israel. In the past, he had compared the call for an economic boycott of Israel to actions by the Nazis. And he has said that the group Jewish Voice for Peace, whose members we
